They will be joined by Cowboy Troy and Bradley Gaskin when the "Save a Horse" musicians take the stage on Saturday night.  Hotels and campsites will fill up quickly so find a room or site today.
Country Music sensation Gretchen Wilson will headline the Friday night portion of NY Country Jam.

In 2012 she has opened 4 sold out Travis Tritt concerts and will tour this summer with Reba McEntire and Little Texas.

On Saturday night NY Country Jam welcomes Country Music superstars Big & Rich with special guests Cowboy Troy and Bradley Gaskin. Known for such monster hits as “Save a Horse” and “Comin’to your City” Big & Rich have made a lot of noise in country music by incorporating rock and rap into their albums.
Before Big & Rich take the stage Country Music fans can give a tip of their hats to multiple hit producing country music star Tracy Lawrence . Over a two decade career Tracy Lawrence has been a hit producing machine and his collaboration with longtime friends Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, “Find Out Who Your Friends Are”, reached No. 1 on the Billboard country chart and was later named the Academy of Country Music vocal event of the year.

Mr. Worley has been nominated for 5 major ACM and CMA awards and continues to perform around the country as well as write new material.
Before Darryl Worley takes the stage NY Country Jam fans can hear 2012 Academy of Country Music Songwriter of the Year nominee David Lee Murphy. Mr. Murphy has written or co-written 13 charting country singles including the #1 hit “Dust on the Bottle.” He also co-wrote “Living In Fast Forward” by Kenny Chesney, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” by Thompson Square, “”Always the Love Songs” by Eli Young Band, “The More I Drink” by Blake Shelton, “Big Green Tractor” by Jason Aldean, “A Feeling Like That” by Gary Allan and “Goes Down Easy” by Van Zant.

Visit the NY Country Jam website. I'm guessing that is where the information on free tickets will be. The tourism office isn't in charge of any of this event, so I really don't have any idea.

I'm a local and want to work at the concert. Where would I apply?

You would apply with the promoter, which is the Results Group in Syracuse.
